Greetings Families!


We really miss you!


Although the school's halls are empty, our hearts are full with thoughts of you. We hope that you are still creating moments of peace and having lots of quality time with your children. Our biggest hope is that you are healthy and safe.

PROJECT ACES 2020

"If you don't take care of your body, where will you live??"

Please join us for Project ACES (All Children Exercise Simultaneously)

Project ACES is a signature program of the Youth Fitness Coalition, Inc. Project ACES was created by physical education teacher Len Saunders in 1989 as a method of motivating children to exercise. ACES takes place on the first Wednesday in May as part of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month along with National Physical Education Week. It has been labeled as "the world's largest exercise class" by the media. Since 1989, millions of children from all over the world exercise together to promote proper health and fitness habits. With the obesity epidemic facing the youth of the world, children's fitness plays a major role in fighting heart disease. Project ACES hopes to address these issues with its big event.

WHAT DO THE CHILDREN DO DURING PROJECT ACES?

On May 6th, 2020 at 10 AM, all children will either exercise, walk, jog, bike, dance, do aerobics, or a combination or all the above. There is no specific routine to follow, just have the children do some form of exercise at 10 AM. Feel free to be as creative as you would like. Feel free to play music to accompany the activities if you prefer. The goal is to have everyone associated with Montrose Early Childhood Center have some fun by moving and exercising "together".
